Many studies have now been conducted into the use of acupuncture to support IVF treatment, and the quality of research is continually improving. IVF can be a stressful process, and the stress-relieving effects of acupuncture are a welcome support through this time.
For the past eighteen years, Dr Mary-Jo Bevin (TCM) has been working with couples who are trying to conceive, either naturally or with the assistance of IVF, to help improve their outcomes as much as possible. She will support you through your entire IVF journey, helping you to feel empowered and informed along the way. Regular appointments can help to make this often challenging time a little less stressful, a great “side-effect” of acupuncture.
Mary-Jo believes in integrative medicine, incorporating the latest scientific research with a traditional, holistic approach, and is confident in working alongside gynaecologists, obstetricians and fertility specialists.
Timing of acupuncture treatments
To get the best possible outcome, we recommend having regular acupuncture in the weeks before you start your IVF cycle to prepare your body, during the stimulation phase, before and after embryo transfer, and again a few days after embryo transfer. This usually means fortnightly acupuncture sessions during the preparation phase, and weekly once the IVF process begins. Of course, everyone’s timeframe is different, and we will follow a schedule that works for you.
Everyone’s situation is different, so please ">get in touch to find out how I can help you or book an appointment to get started.
